i just got a extra russian and i decided to screw around with it. since i cant use my stock one for hunting due to the mag size i decided to make a bubb'ed one for shits and giggles. so down to my question, would a new firing pin and spring which are made in america count towards the total number of us made parts? here is my tentitive list.
All the us made parts im thinking of:
ATI drag stock or monte stock not sure which yet
the gas piston
the piston tube with heat sheild
firing pin spring
bi pod on bayo lug
detach mags (various sizes 5 and 30's)
new mag release
new rear sight
new front sight
new dust cover
by my count that is like 15 parts is that accurate?
tag for answer
